In the newly announced co-main event, super lightweight contender Ryan “Blue Chip” Martin (18-0, 11 KOs) of Chattanooga, Tennessee will bring his unblemished record to the desert in a 10-round fight against Marcos “El Tigre” Jimenez (22-7, 15 KOs) of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

Hoping to make TV, heavy-handed Genaro “El Conde” Gamez (4-0, 3 KOs) from San Diego, California, returns to Fantasy Springs for the first time since knocking an opponent clear out of the ring last September. This time, he will take on Miguel Barajas (2-2, 1 KO) from Guadalajara, Mexico in a six-round match-up of lightweights.

Former IBF and WBO Featherweight Champion, Mexican actor and circus performer Jorge “El Maromero” Paez (79-14-5, 51 KOs) will be the VIP guest for this June 30th Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN card.

As the VIP guest of the night, Paez will be in attendance for the fights and will be on hand to meet fans; sign autographs and take pictures inside the Fantasy Springs Special Events Center before the ESPN broadcast begins.

Just two weeks after he is slated to fight in Dallas, San Antonio native and super featherweight Hector “El Finito” Tanajara Jr. (9-0, 4 KOs) is set to return against an opponent to be named later for a six round super featherweight bout.

Hot off his professional debut, standout amateur Luis Feliciano (1-0) from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and fighting out of Rancho Cucamonga will be back in action for a six-round super lightweight showdown against Baltazar Ramirez (3-2, 3 KOs) of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.

And opening up the card, Philadelphia native Damon “No Smilin” Allen (11-0-1, 5 KOs) will put his undefeated record on the line in an eight-round match-up of lightweights against a soon-to-be-named opponent.

Is Ryan Martin signed with Golden Boy or K2? I know he got out his contract with 50 Cent. He is on the ESPN card and they saying if he wins will likely land on the Canelo PPV undercard.
